    Hi,

    As you may or may not know, the TSR Wiki's graduate employers page is currently undergoing changes, intending to help inform gradutes regarding potential employment and relevent employer information.

    Graduate Employer Guides

    If you have successfully applied to one of the listed graduate employers, we would like to hear your experiences of doing so, giving readers an insight into the process as well as advice from those who have gone through it.

    Adding information to the Wiki is simple, simply select the link for the employer you wish to edit, scroll down to the 'Experiences' area of the page and select the [edit] link on the right hand side. You can then input your details, select save and the page will then be saved. If you have any problems either refer to the Editing Help link or feel free to ask any questions in the Wiki forum.

    For quick reference, those most applicable for Finance and Accountancy are as follows:
    BDO Stoy Hayward
    BNP Paribas
    Citigroup
    Credit Suisse
    Deloitte
    Ernst & Young
    Financial Services Authority
    Grant Thornton
    HBOS Banking
    HSBC
    KPMG
    Mercer
    Merrill Lynch
    Morgan Stanley
    PricewaterhouseCoopers
    RBS Group
    UBS


    Many thanks, we look forward to hearing your experiences of applying to such prominent graduate employers.

    Finally, those that contribute will be rewarded riches dependent on the contribution made. To earn enough riches for a months subscription for example, requires a paragraph for each section. Simply post in this thread when you have added your content and you will expect to have riches added in the near future.

    Regards,

    Surely the Big 4 - PwC, KPMG, Ernst & Young and Deloitte - would be just as relevant, if not more so, as some of those listed?

    I really don't have any knowledge about these fields, so have just gone on what I could briefly find. Have added those to the list now though, cheers.

    I've updated the employer info for Ernst & Young - I'll probably get around to adding my experience in a few days.

    FWIW, you might get a better response to the investment banks in the Investment Banking and Consultancy forum. This would include the following at least:
    • Citigroup
    • Merrill Lynch
    • Morgan Stanley
    • UBS

    And yeah, the IB&C and Armed forces will get similar threads/announcements, but we're just holding off a few days as they're flooded with them at the moment. They should be up early next week :yy:
